Greetings and some first impressions
I have just registeredy to the forums, as I hope to find answers to some questions I have about my newly bought Cybook and, why not, give my point of view sometimes, or help people with their own Cybooks (but I must first learn to use mine).
I am pretty happy with the Cybook Gen3, but there are a few things that sadden me:
I had another problem (which I won’t count as a real drawback): I was reading Melville’s Moby Dick on my Palm, so I transferred the prc onto the Cybook and opened the book. Now, how to find where I was? I knew I was at chapter 54, but how can you find chapter 54 if there is no index and no search function? I had to take my calculator and try to convert the "read percentage" given by my Palm into a page number for the Cybook. It wasn’t very accurate, so I had to do it again three or four times before I found the chapter 53 (and then all I had to do was going further up to chapter 54). It took me some time ;-)
But the main thing is there: you can read for hours and hours, without the battery running out (Palm) or the book loosing pages the first time you read it (some paper pocket editions).

I know nothing about the Cybook but it you don't get the answers you are looking for here, you might want to repost your question in the Cybook forum. Good luck.
